Summer is here, the weather
is great, and children are out of school. At Fort Riley, we offer a number of
activities and resources for families to get involved in.
One of our organizations, Child,
Youth and School Services, supports our Fort Riley Army families with quality and
affordable programs for children, youth and teenagers. CYSS has a system of care,
which includes the child development centers, School Age Center, Middle School Teen
Center and Youth Sports and Fitness programs, to name a few.
I’d like to highlight a few
of the activities to be hosted by CYSS in the coming few weeks.
INTERNET-MEDIA SAFETY CARNIVAL
June is recognized as
Internet and Media Safety Month. An Internet and Media Safety Carnival is
scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. June 27 at the teen center gym. This is a great
learning opportunity for children ages 6 to 18, as well as a fun afternoon
filled with games, prizes, popcorn and cotton candy.
TEEN POWER CAMP
High school students, as
well military children who will enter into high school within the coming year,
are encouraged to sign up for the Teen Power Camp.
This enriching five-day resilience
and performance enhancement curriculum is designed to increase awareness, knowledge
and appreciation of how the mind influences performance as future leaders in
school, sports and other activities. Teen Power Camp will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
from July 21 to 25 at the Victory Center.
The event is hosted by the Fort
